From this year on I’ll be visiting New York City as often as
possible to research if there’s possibility for me to orient
myself in the sector of modelmaking and/or manufacturing.
I worked for 7 years as model maker, and for 3 out of these 7
years I made models for high quality jewelry, always using lost
In the US, generally speaking, when you look for a work place as
a model maker, is it very important preparing well-made resume?
Or is it more important bringing with you the photographs or the
models to show?
In Valenza (Italy), where I live, it’s quite usual that we make
phone calls to the companies we listed up from yellow pages of
the town to ask if they need any. If they don’t, they’ll ask us
about our experiences (in which company we worked, etc.) and our
phone no., or if they need, we’ll take an appointment and talk
personally. Then normally they’d try your ability for 1 or 2
weeks. Is it much different in the US, especially in NYC? I’d be
very glad if I could hear something in this regard from people
Please don’t hesitate e-mailing me!
Thank you very much,
